The major rivers in Chiayi County (Puzi Creek, Beigang Creek, and Bajia Creek) are mixed polluted rivers that are polluted by business, domestic sewage, and animal husbandry. In order to promote the prevention and control of pollution in the river basins, Chiayi County Environmental Protection Bureau has commissioned TGI to implement the "111 Year Chiayi County Water Pollution Source Audit and Control and Water Pollution Fee Collection Checking Plan" (hereinafter referred to as this plan). The implementation period of this project is from January 01, 111 to November 30, 111, and the work progress results are as follows. The Ministry of Environment and Science is responsible for the following matters.
I. Industrial pollution source permit management
This project has completed 556 permit reviews, including 121 discharge permits, 219 water pollution prevention and control measures, 168 runoff wastewater reduction projects, and 48 storage permits. The average number of review days for each type of permit case was 14.6 days (from the date of receipt to the date of issuance), and the average number of review days for the completion of the project was 8.8 days (from the date of receipt to the date of filing of the water system).
Of the 29 on-site inspection operations (new applications or cases involving functional changes), 19 were found to be inconsistent with the application documents after inspection.
In accordance with the periodic inspection and reporting period, the number of completed reports for utility or sewerage systems is 301, and 301 reviews and approvals have been completed under this program.
The number of completed inspections is 294 for the business and 7 for the community, and the rate of achievement is 100% for the business and 100% for the community.
In the first half of the year, we checked the application documents of "Jiahui Electric Co., Ltd.", which was signed by technician Wen-Yen Chang, and the total number of missing bases was 17.5 points, which was a level 2 deficiency.
This year, 556 applications for permits were scanned electronically, followed by 304 applications for new, changed and extended permits, and 304 applications for maintenance of the water pollution source information management system database after approval, accounting for 20.7% of the total; 53 applications were scanned for electronic files.
2. Business waste water discharge audit
The number of audits was 611, including 470 for businesses, 77 for sewerage systems and 64 for other non-regulated sources.
A total of 305 samples were collected from the source audits, including 217 from businesses, 81 from sewerage systems and 7 from other non-regulated sources, 12 from experts and 130 from ammonia nitrogen audits.
According to the sampling results of the above audits, 13 cases of illegal discharge or violation of the Water Pollution Law were detected, including 7 cases of "discharge water quality exceeding the discharge water standard limit", 5 cases of "failure to submit a runoff wastewater reduction plan" and 1 case of "discharging wastewater without obtaining a discharge permit"; 12 cases have been completed, and another case is under the process of presenting opinions, and the amount of sanctions has been completed at about NT$556,000.
Experts and scholars were commissioned to conduct 12 in-depth audits and counseling, of which 9 are in the first tier of the tiered control, and 3 are in other key areas and are considered by the EPA as targets for improvement. The results of the counseling were that except for two companies, Nanya Plastic Industry Co.
As of November 30, 111, a total of 168 inspections and 130 discharge water samples were conducted for 36 companies whose water quality item "ammonia nitrogen" is regulated and whose wastewater is discharged to surface water bodies, of which 2 cases of ammonia nitrogen exceeded the discharge water limit and were reported for punishment under Article 7 of the Water Pollution Law. In addition, we invited experts and scholars to conduct on-site counseling on the reduction of ammonia nitrogen at two companies, including "Shin Dai Enterprise Co.
Floating water sensor or scientific tool operation
The first level of monitoring was completed in 77 cases and 539 cases; the second level of monitoring was completed in 4 cases and 28 cases; the third level of monitoring was completed in 22 cases and 154 cases, totaling 721 cases.
The monitoring results found that one company had abnormal discharge, and the company did not obtain the discharge permit (document) approved by Chiayi County Government and discharged wastewater without permission.
4. Non-regulated industries in the coastal area discharge water for heavy metal pollution inventory operations
In the coastal areas of Dongshi Township, Bupu Township, and Yizhu Township within the county, an inventory has been conducted for those who are suspected of producing industrial wastewater and containing heavy metals, even though the water pollution is not listed as a regulated business. 13 companies have been inventoried, and the results are not classified as listed businesses under the Water Pollution Control Law.
V. Commissioning of industrial areas for investigation
The first meeting was held on April 28, 111, and the second meeting was held on October 26, 111, to discuss the issues of joint inspection with industrial zones, sewerage system in industrial zones, and the general inspection of industrial zones. The meeting was held on October 26, 2011 to discuss the joint inspection with industrial areas, the waste water collection ditches or pipelines dedicated to the sewerage system in industrial areas, and the storm water collection ditches or pipelines for general inspection, with the hope of effectively improving the efficacy of waste water management in industrial areas and preventing the unlawful discharge of waste water to storm water drains by means of the mutual cooperation and interoperability platform.
Functional diagnosis, evaluation, inspection or counseling of wastewater treatment units of the listed companies
This plan is based on the functional diagnosis and evaluation of the six approved business units. The initial evaluation will be conducted in March, the re-evaluation will be conducted in April, the preliminary results of the functional evaluation will be submitted on May 26, the consultation meeting will be held on June 23, and the registration of the inspection results will be completed on July 18.
Drinking water related management
The sampling of tap water quality did not meet the drinking water quality standard in 1 case. There were three cases of water quality samples from water purification sites that did not meet the standards, and four times of re-sampling were completed, all of which now meet the drinking water quality standards. In addition, 257 new cases were completed, 84 of which were located within the drinking water protection zone.
